Agency History

The Texas Constitution of 1845 required the Secretary of State to "keep a fair register of all official acts and proceedings of the Governor" and to provide these to the legislature when required. This duty (and others) were reiterated in the act "to define the duties of Secretary of State," approved May 9, 1846. This authority was reconfirmed by the Constitutions of 1866 (Article V, Section 17), 1869 (Article IV, Section 17) and 1876 (Article IV, Section 21), and subsequent amendments.

The Secretary of State is a constitutional officer of the executive branch of state government, appointed by the governor and confirmed by the senate for a term concurrent with the governor's (a two-year term at first, a four-year term since 1974). The office was first created by the Constitution of the Republic of Texas in 1836 (Article VI, Section 10), and has been continued by each succeeding Constitution.

According to the terms of the Articles of Annexation, the State of Texas, "when admitted into the Union, after ceding to the United States all public edifices, fortifications, barracks, ports and harbors, navy and navy-yards, docks, ... and all other property and means pertaining to the public defence belonging to the said Republic of Texas ... shall also retain all the vacant and unappropriated lands lying within its limits .... the residue of said lands, after discharging said debts and liabilities, to be disposed of as said State may direct." (Joint Resolution, March 1, 1845, 5 U.S. Stat. 797)

One of the constitutional duties of the Secretary of State (beginning with the first state constitution) is to register all official acts and proceedings of the governor, including deeds of cession. The Statutory Documents Section of the Business and Public Filings Division (formerly called the Statutory Filings Division), in the Office of the Secretary of State receives filings of the record copy of the deeds of cession. (Texas Constitution, Article IV, Section 21)


Scope and Contents of the Records

These records include deeds of cession, general and special warranty deeds, deeds of conveyance, quitclaim deeds, abstracts of title, certificates of title, correspondence, affidavits, statements, certifications, minute orders, maps, plats, field notes, metes and bounds descriptions, bonds (construction, repair work, etc.), warrant receipts, certificates of deposit, resolutions, city ordinances, contracts, bids, specifications, transfers of deed of trust lien, releases of mechanics lien, writs of possession, copies of judgements, condemnation proceedings, attorney general opinion on validity of title, etc. They date 1848-1994 (not inclusive) and undated (bulk 1928-1963). The records, filed with the Texas Secretary of State's Statutory Documents Section, comprise deeds to property, title abstracts, deeds of cession of jurisdiction, and other documents which legally transfer title of property and jurisdiction between the state of Texas and other parties, including private individuals, corporations, local governments, and the federal government of the United States. At the Secretary of State's office, where they were originally filed, they are referred to as "Deeds, abstracts, and deeds of cession of jurisdiction."

Records are in three major groups: (1) for property deeded to the State of Texas (for state parks and historical monuments, state universities, state eleemosynary institutions, state penitentiaries, quarantine stations, the state cemetery, etc.); (2) for cessions of jurisdiction by the State of Texas to the United States government (for military posts, river improvements, dams, lighthouses, the Galveston seawall, quarantine stations, post offices, federal correctional institutions, veterans hospitals, customs houses, ordnance works, federal office buildings, the Alabama-Coushatta Indian reservation, national parks, national wildlife refuges, etc.); and (3) for property deeded by the State of Texas (mostly relinquishing state title to abandoned rights-of-way). The state, as conveyor or assignee, is a party to all these deeds; the other party can be an individual or a group, including local governments or the federal government. Many 20th century files cede constitutional jurisdiction to the federal government while the state retains concurrent jurisdiction for civil and criminal process; these deeds of cession were usually executed by the governor and filed with the secretary of state. Files relinquishing state title to abandoned rights-of-way consist of correspondence, the deed being deposited with the Texas State Highway Department (now the Texas Department of Transportation).

Also included in these records are two aids to research in deeds of cession to the federal government. One is a card file index to deeds of cession, 1900-1978 (bulk 1928-1959). This index contains the county or the name of the fort, post office, etc.; the file number (beginning with 63-xxx); a file date; and a detailed description of the document(s). Supplementing this alphabetical index is a chronological register of deeds of cession, 1900-1959 (bulk 1928-1959), giving year (beginning in 1900), month and day (beginning in 1943), file number (the first hundred entries omit the 63- prefix), site name, and county.

Deeds, abstracts, and deeds of cession of jurisdiction are created to document the legal transfer of property and/or jurisdiction over property to or from the State of Texas.

To prepare this inventory, the described materials were cursorily reviewed to delineate series, to confirm the accuracy of contents lists, to provide an estimate of dates covered, and to determine record types.

Deeds of cession from State of Texas to federal government, 1848-1994 (not inclusive) (bulk 1928-1959),
4.71 cubic ft.

These records include deeds of cession of jurisdiction, requests and applications for cessions of jurisdiction, correspondence, maps, plats, deeds, warranty deeds, quitclaim deeds, deed abstracts, field notes, survey notes, metes and bounds descriptions, certifications, resolutions of city councils, city ordinances, judgements, condemnation proceedings, legal opinions on cessions of jurisdiction, etc. They date 1848, 1855-1857, 1859, 1871, 1873-1875, 1878, 1881-1885, 1887, 1889-1890, 1894, 1900, 1904-1909, 1912-1916, 1918, 1921, 1928-1930, 1932-1933, 1936-1937, 1941-1945, 1947-1956, 1959, 1961, 1966, 1972, 1974, and 1976-1979, 1990, 1994 (bulk 1928-1959). These records, filed with the Texas Secretary of State's Statutory Documents Section, comprise deeds of cession of jurisdiction and other documents which legally transfer title of property and jurisdiction between the state of Texas and the federal government of the United States. The purposes of such cessions of jurisdiction include military posts (army, navy, airforce, coast guard), river improvements, dams, lighthouses, the Galveston seawall, quarantine stations, post offices, federal correctional institutions, veterans hospitals, customs houses, ordnance works, federal office buildings, the Alabama-Coushatta Indian reservation, national parks, national wildlife refuges, etc. Many 20th century files cede constitutional jurisdiction to the federal government while the state retains concurrent jurisdiction for civil and criminal process. These deeds of cession were usually executed by the governor of Texas and filed with the Texas Secretary of State.
Also included in these records are two aids to research in deeds of cession to the federal government. One is a card file index to deeds of cession, 1900-1978 (bulk 1928-1959). This index contains the county or the name of the fort, post office, etc.; the file number (beginning with 63-xxx); a file date; and a detailed description of the document(s). Supplementing this alphabetical index is a chronological register of deeds of cession, 1900-1959 (bulk 1928-1959), giving year (beginning in 1900), month and day (beginning in 1943), file number (the first hundred entries omit the 63- prefix), site name, and county.
Historical notes
According to the terms of the Articles of Annexation, the State of Texas, "when admitted into the Union, after ceding to the United States all public edifices, fortifications, barracks, ports and harbors, navy and navy-yards, docks, ... and all other property and means pertaining to the public defence belonging to the said Republic of Texas ... shall also retain all the vacant and unappropriated lands lying within its limits .... the residue of said lands, after discharging said debts and liabilities, to be disposed of as said State may direct." (Joint Resolution, March 1, 1845, 5 U.S. Stat. 797)
One of the constitutional duties of the Secretary of State (beginning with the first state constitution) is to register all official acts and proceedings of the governor, including deeds of cession. The Statutory Documents Section in the Office of the Secretary of State maintains the record copy of the deeds of cession. (Texas Constitution, Article IV, Section 21)
Arrangement
These records are arranged in two groups. The first group (dated 1848-1918, not inclusive) is arranged by type of property, then roughly alphabetically within each type of property, then chronologically within a file. The second--and larger--group (dated 1912-1994, also not inclusive) is arranged numerically (which is also roughly chronologically); these numbers were assigned by the staff of the Secretary of State, 63-1 thru 171.
